Functional principle

TubeInspect P16, a non-contact measuring system, merely requires that the tube to be measured is placed in an optical measuring cell. Sixteen high-resolution digital cameras with latest GigE technology accurately measure the tube’s geometry in a few seconds. The tube does not need to be moved. The geometry is reported in an easily understandable way that is as sheath tolerance.


Background information

Businesses that produce tubes and pipes often mention four areas of costs that have a serious effect on total costs: gauge costs, material costs, storage costs and setup costs of bending machines. In order to minimize these costs, it pays off to invest in modern technology for tube measurement. The article “cost optimization of tube manufacturing” published in the magazine INSPECT offers detailed information about this topic.
